Booking Through Thursday is a weekly meme hosted by Deb about mostly books and reading. This weeks question is:
Which is preferred – stories with multiple characters point of views? or stories that stick to one or two at most? And why?
I personally prefer stories that have only one persons point of view if the writing is in first person. I find it really hard to engage with a story if you are stuck in multiple peoples heads. Its just a preference, although I do understand why authors choose to write this way. This being said if a story is written in third person then I don’t mind if it focuses on a few characters, as this gives you a wider view of the authors world without the muddle of being inside someones mind. Libba Bray’s The Diviners does this very well, and of course good old HP.
